Momoko entered KOF XI as one of the three newcomers, alongside Elizabeth and Oswald. She's a high school student who acts young for her age, and is easily offended when people confuse her for an elementary school student. She trains in Capoeira and learned some Psychic Powers from Athena and Kensou, who she considers her martial arts teachers. She is upbeat, care-free, and curious to explore new or interesting things with a passion. She eats a lot and is always a little sad when she's refused food. Her name translates to "Peach child" in Japanese.

Although new to the fighting circle, she tries her best to impress Athena. Athena personally asked Momoko to enter, although Kensou had his doubts about entering a girl who "looks like a grade schooler". His complaints were quickly silenced by a "personal talk" (beating) from Athena and she was accepted into the team. Momoko's entry to the King of Fighters tournament -in Athena's words- sparked the rebirth of the Psycho Soldier team.

Surprisingly, the KOF series lacked an authentic Capoeira fighter for most of it's lifespan, so Momoko was a welcomed addition in KOF XI. Momoko humorously seems a bit too young for the KOF tournament, but Bao managed to get in a few years earlier, so I guess it's fair game. Being one of the youngest Capoeira fighters to appear in a fighting game, she's got some originality and her 2D sprite has some pretty cool / subtle animations. Her visual design is somewhat simple... but it's actually traditional Capoeira attire for the most part!

Momoko's fighting style is actually one of the best to appear in the 2D KOF series if you ask me. She has some awesome kicks with stunning animations... and some of her mannerisms & taunts are hilarious as well! It's a damn shame she didn't come out earlier in the KOF series, and it's pretty much a sin that she hasn't appeared in any games besides KOF XI... but I don't think we've seen the last of Momoko. I was disappointed she didn't make the cut to KOF XII-XIII, because her sprite in those games would've been epic.
